Jim Carrey At The Sage Scientist Symposium 201317 Aug 2013
By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
Yesterday, the three days event "Sage Scientist Symposium 2013", started at the La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad California and Jim Carrey attended it.
This event was held by The Chopra Foundation, created by Deepak Chopra, an Indian-American physician, a holistic health/New Age guru and an alternative medicine practitioner.
The idea is to have people from both science and sage world to discuss how to make this world a better place:
"These are urgent times for such a meeting of the minds.
For centuries in the West, science has rejected the idea of transcendent realities.
The fantastic success of modern science on the technological front has enabled human beings to shape raw materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, etc.) and achieve what would have been magic in earlier ages: machines that fly, computers to hold almost infinite data, and pills that make pain disappear. Technology has been an unstoppable juggernaut rolling over human consciousness, delivering unimaginable power and comfort.
But over the last few decades another voice has made itself heard, warning us that all is not well. The worldwide financial meltdown is matched by a cultural pandemic of confusion and a desperate search for deeper values.
A groundswell of knowledge and insight has been building. Its shared message is this:
There is something else, a dimension of reality beyond the material world.
Beyond us but in our midst.
This isn't a rebirth of mysticism, but a modern way to merge ancient insights with modern scientific theory.
Our panel of world-class scientists and sages are sympathetic with the search for a single reality that embraces science and wisdom.
The Merging of a New Future will explore a series of fantastic emerging facts - the only genuine currency of science - and a contemporary synthesis where science and soul coexist comfortably. Without such a merging, our world cannot survive.
Jim Carrey met with Deepak Chopra and other speakers at the event:
Hopefully more pictures will turn up and we'll inform you, as the news arrive.
